LES soul sucking

LES soul sucking
another staple of LES anti-culture and artistic freedom has been kicked out of the hood. the Collective Unconscious Theater group was recently forced to leave their space on Ludlow to make way for a new “luxury apartment building” (they’ve now moved to 279 Church St.) we love the “Starbucks” and “The Gap” kiss-off they tagged up on the building front before they left…

and it seems one of our favorite local bar gardens Barrimundi, is shortly to follow. but fortunately it looks like they’ve found a new home at 67 Clinton St – yay! (some good quotes from Lockhart Steele of Curbed in the article) more on changing Clinton St. here.

the NY Press article also tipped us that one of our all time favorite LES bars – Motor City – might be is for sale (that would truly SUCK!)
